Hi Sean, saw Daintree in the list with 23% margin and was wondering what about View at Kismis which is selling around 1650psf. Any views on this project? Appreciate it.

Hey Sean thanks for the list. I’ve been looking at Meyer Mansion for some time (> 14 floor) but pricing is a little too high. Saw that the take-up rate quite low and the margins quite high, any thoughts on this project? Thanks.

Hi Choo Ting, indeed Meyer Mansion has been priced higher (avg $2800 psf) due to its proximity to the city centre. A more affordable and ready alternative would be Coastline Residences which is in the ballpark of $2500psf and will achieve TOP status earlier in end-2022 (vs 2024 for MM). Kindly contact me at 88036257 for more information.

Hi Sean, whats your opinion on Penrose and Clavon, which one do you think is a better buy and why ??
Sincerely appreciate your kind sharing.

Thanks Sean. I didn’t see JadeScape in this list while i thought their estimated margin is high. Any reason?

Hi Sean, do you think we should not buy now, wait for developer discount?

Georgina

Do you think there’ll be discounts for Leedon Green? The margin seems pretty low and they launched not long ago..

Tan
Tan

Hi Georgina, the developer has an ongoing promotion for selected units (different unit types, mid-floor and below) with a discount of about 2%. However, do note that when purchasing new condo developments, you will always get the best price when you buy it during the launch phase (and within a year of launch). At the same time, you have a bigger pool of units to shortlist and ultimately choose. You may have seen some developers offering say 5% discount for a development some years after launch but do not forget the earliest buyer had already bought them say 8-10% lower.… Read more »

hi Sean,

i would like to ask your opinion on Forett. what do you think about this project? any capital gain in the next 10 years or more?

also, i realized that it is the biggest freehold project in 20/21 and how does that position Forett against other freehold properties in the region?

Stacked Homes
Stacked Homes

Hey Kenny, these are really good points you’ve raised! We think the pricing is a bit bullish in the current market and for an outskirt project. Demand may prove otherwise if secondary market deems it fit. But from where we stand, we think the prices will remain relatively suppressed compared to overall prices in Singapore in the next 10 years.

kenny
kenny

thank you.

what about my second question? 😉

Stacked Homes

Hey! When you say region, do you mean in district 21, or just generally around the area?

Alvin

Dear Sean,

The current selling price for TREASURE@TAMPINES at S$1,350 psf as stated in your STACKED HOMES is not correct. I rang the agent and she said there is a range of prices from the lowest to the highest floor. Hence, you may state the psf is from ………or insert in the psf for every level. I did a quick calculation and noticed the total price difference can soar to S$100,000 for some levels.

It is appreciated if accurate information is provided and this also enhances the creditability of STACKED HOMES.

Thanks

Alvin

Hey Alvin! Thank you for your suggestion. We’ve edited it to show it as an estimate as a more accurate depiction than a fixed price. We’ve been trying to find a better way to display more timely and accurate prices as well. Prices are prone to changes at short notice and their availability at those prices may not last too, so we’ll be on the lookout on how we can improve this. Thank you!

Hi Sean, what are your thoughts on Nyon?

Tan
Tan

Hi Sean, don’t see anyone talking about the Linq, any thoughts on the $2.2K-$2.3K entry price at Beauty World area?

Eddie

HI, I saw the take up rate of Nyon is quite low, but it does seem to be pricing on the lower end compared to new launches nearby. Any views on this project? Thanks!

Hey Eddie! We’ve already shortlisted Nyon for our in-depth condo review, so do keep a look out for it!

Do you think that The Reef at King’s Dock will have direct developer discount? What is also your view of this property against other similarly priced properties?

Stacked Homes
Stacked Homes

Hi Kelvin! We actually just published our review – you can find out more at https://stackedhomes.com/editorial/the-reef-at-kings-dock-review/. With regards to direct developer discount, generally for large and popular developments like this, you would have to go through their appointed marketing agency.

Edwin

Hi Sean, would like to hear your view on Jovell Vs Parc Komo in term of potential appreciation & chances of discount soon?

Duke
Duke

Hi Sean, though it’s last year’s article, I found it here as I am interested in Meyer Mansion. As your team pointed out, the margin rate is high and the take up rate is low – which indicates the higher chance of developer discount.
However, your team excludes the Avenir and Midtown Bay as they are from GuocoLand, while your team includes Meyer Mansion – which is from GuocoLand as well. Are there any reason your team treated Meyer Mansion differently with the Avenir & Midtown Bay?
